A poem on saviour of Islam and humanity on Imam HUSAIN as the grandson of our holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) By Husain Haider Rizvi
The whole universe
Immersed into tears of pain
O Imam! Ya Husain
In Karbala when arrows flew
Towards you like torrents of rain
You got them pierced into your being
And not a slight bruise touched Islam
Every drop of blood from the wound
Turned into blossoms of fragrance,
River Euphrates still dashes its head
On the sacred feet of Husain a.s.
Karbala is victory of Thirst over water
Victory of truth over hypocrisy
Victory of Patience over oppression.
If any one believes in Karbala,
Breathes in true freedom of self
And liberation from oppression.
Let us live Karbala in every breath
To be a true human being like
HUSAIN Alaihis salaam.
